I put the unit caps on my manafold gauges where the hoses are stored. It is easy to find them then.

See a lot seasoned veteran techs guilty of leaving shrader caps off…see it all the time, just pure laziness in my opinion.. drives me nuts!!

It's funny to hear about these goofy mistakes commonly made by techs, who have relatively concrete ways of inspecting their work, and then consider what we might laughingly call "management."

When I was still quite green I was having trouble figuring out an issue with a manitowoc ice machine. I called my boss. The first thing he said was, Did you read the manual? I said no. He said call me back after you read the manual. Best lesson I learned from that guy.

I hate when I find empty beer cans inside the equipment,

True: I have some young techs that often leave the caps loose. they'll spin the flared hex caps on finger tight at best. Fortunately they don't do any of these other things

One more that you might want to add:
GET OFF THE PHONE! I myself got distracted by a phone conversation while disconnecting from a system and , ……… well let’s just say that I’m not proud of what happened next.

Everyone makes mistakes. We were all new at one point. I always just explain what they did wrong and how to correct it. I don't get mad unless they're doing something blatantly unsafe or dangerous

Absolutely great video!
If I may add; Before condemning a compressor for being shorted or grounded, be sure and not just test at the wires at the contactor and capacitor- get down there and remove the cover or plug on the compressor and test at the terminals/lugs. There may be a CRS wire shorted to the case or tubing or perhaps a wire came loose.
Also, as a courtesy, If I am working on an AH or furnace unit in the attic, I look around and check the insulation, ventilation, any piping, ducting, electrical, maybe termites or rodents, leaky roof and so on. The customer is well impressed if you do find a problem that can be fixed before it becomes a huge problem.
47 years at HVACR and still going strong.

Tugging on electrical connections is such a simple step that so many people in any job where you might be making those connections fail to do.

The biggest thing I have found as I've matured as a tech is ignoring your pride you don't know everything and reaching out to tech support or a senior tech is not showing weakness know your limits

One of my most memorable rookie mistakes was made changing out a defective hi press sw. on a carrier rtu. The senior tech I was with saw I wasn't using a back up wrench . I snapped off the port just as he yelled NOOOOO ! That was followed by – " Go get the torch. " Woops !

It always is fun to bad mouth your fellow tech who has more experience and thinks he knows everything

Professor joe ward graduates are often guilty of this

I always always put a date on all air filters that I changed, so if I come back for a season inspection and filter hasn’t been changed when it should have I bring it to the customers attention.

Something that I don't like about this trade is that other people will shame you and call you a hack for stuff they know damn well they also did when they first started.

Great Info for apprentices and journeyman alike. Your podcast and YouTube videos have taught me a lot about the trade. Thanks

Most companies in my area, especially non union, hire people with no experience so they can pay them garbage wages while still charging a customer top dollar. As a customer educate yourself somewhat before a technician shows up then ask your technician some basic questions. If they stubble on answering your questions send them away and call a different company or request a senior technician.
